Texas Electric Cooperative Cookbook: "60 Years of Home Cooking"
Nothing brings back the decades of our lives like the memories of meals past. 60 Years of Home Cooking is more than a cookbook; it is a celebration of Texas rural life through recipes, reminiscences, collages and documentary photography.
From its inception in 1944, Texas Co-op Power magazine, from which these recipes, are drawn, introduced members of electric cooperatives to a new world of modern conveniences. At first, articles explained to readers how and what to cook in their glorious new temperature-controlled ovens and how to make the best use of modern refrigeration.
Through the decades, the magazine's recipe pages-including a deluge of monthly contributions from readers-became more adventurous. But the recipes have always been practical-geared to an audience of day-in, day-out cooks with limited resources and limited time.
To this day, the recipes are the most popular feature of the magazine, which has monthly circulation of more than 1 million households and businesses, making it the most widely distributed Texas magazine.
"60 Years of Home Cooking" offers a plate-pleasing journey from the 1940s through the 1990s in rural Texas. It is fascinating to learn how the ability to store food and cook with appliances run by electricity changed our recipes and eating habits.
"As a congressman, my father's proudest achievement was bringing electrical power to the Texas Hill Country-the land and the people he loved the most. Home Cooking mixes a zest for cooking, a taste for history, and a dash of Texas pride. Enjoy the eating adventure." -Luci Baines Johnson
